Everyone made it here safe and sound. They weren't in their
boxes in my drip system for more than a minute before they
starting showing off. That green splash male is a nut! Thanks a
bunch for the extras...they fit into my breeding plans nicely!
I'll send the box along tomorrow.
They are all here, safe and sound. I am so happy to receive
these beautiful specimens in such good condition. Yes, their
coloring looks a little faded but I'm sure they'll all be

YOU SO VERY MUCH
YOU JUST ROCKED OUR BETTA WORLD, YOU'RE THE
All three fish are here and in
perfect condition! I've got them floating in the water
I've let sit (with the novaqua and amquel I bought yesterday)
for them, and when I get home tonight I will begin the process
of acclimating them to my water. They're all just fine,
hanging out in the near-dark and next to each other.
What beautiful fish, too! I've never actually even liked
the look of most females, but both of them are gorgeous.
(...) They are all in their tanks
now, and I'm going to release them into the water within an
hour or so. They've all acclimated well. The two
Holy Grails are side-by-side on my desk, and the third
surprise betta is butted up against a five-gallon where one of
my petstore bettas is. They all seem very happy.
Thank you so much, Faith! I'll send your box back
tomorrow after work. :)
K. SAVAGE, VA
The fish have arrived safe and sound.
The daphnia are still boinging around. The boy is VERY
nice. (The girl is cute too.) The microworms
were all over the lid. I gave them their oatmeal!
Thanks a bunch, Lyne
L. PETERSON, CA
Got the betta's yesterday. Acclimated
them overnight. Released them into their respective tanks this
morning. So far, so good. Will keep you posted.
They are beautiful. Actually,
E. CRUZ, NY
| Just a note to let you know
that I received the bettas. They are beautiful and seem to
be doing well. Thank you for doing a great job with everything
from your advice on your website to packing the bettas. Now I
just hope they survive...
S. RAZAK, NY
They're all here and safe despite
their extra day of travel, and are floating in their new
homes (1.8 gallon bowls) for temp acclimation. They all
seem to be alert and active, and their color is already
coming back. The little surprise white girl is so cute and
Your box will be back in the mail by the end of the day.

we have received
our bettas & thanks 4 the extra bettas there beautiful my
little sister kayla loves the surprise maybe giant betta. they
have all arrived safely...
T. GOMEZ, AZ
the bettas and they look great. All ready flaring at
each other even though they are still floating in their bags!
I am happy with the replacement, having the ability to breed
for black is a great bonus. Also thank you for the extra male.
what, I have fry. The DT Satin Flame surprise pair you sent me
have mated and I see fry in my mating tank. I am so elated. The
female (Ruby) has been removed from the tank and papa (Rudy) is
doing the LA to New York thing :)
J. BLAS, GU
I got my angel bettas. Sorry sorry, but Iíve had MAJOR
internet problems and couldnít email you. Your box is on
itís way back. Thank you again so so much and the
fishies are most happy in their new homes (not as happy as I am
to see/enjoy them tho! Lol)Ö. Yours, kris
K. BROWN, TX
I wanted to update you on how your babies are doing. They are
marvelous! Very active and healthy and eating well. The girls
are a little more lively than the boys right now. The pastel boy
is really showing his colors today-- very beautiful. I noticed
with both the red male and female that they seem to be the most aggressive
of all of them. They are constantly flaring at the others, LOL.
I had put the red, one of the holy grail, and the pastel female
in my 30 gal tank which also has an Otocinclus and some shrimp.
The H.G. and
pastel female get along great and don't bother the others, but
the red female is constantly chasing everyone around and
flaring. So, I'm going to have to move her to her own tank
sooner rather than later :(. Oh well. My 2 yr old son is having
tons of fun watching them though. (...)
Thanks so much for raising such beautiful and healthy fish! And
for the generous free pair!
K. ALPHA, CA
I got the
Bettas. They all look so great! This makes twice I've ordered
from you and have not been disappointed Thanks!!! I love the
little Crusader female (is it possible fish can be cute LOL if
so she is!!??). The Emerald Dawns are nice too, is the
male going to color up as he gets older or is this his color?
Thank you so much for the extra crown!!! (...) Thanks again
for having great quality fish!
The bettas are
still doing well. Their colors are really beginning to
show, they are swimming and eating happily. The kids are
really into them and Julian was horrified to learn that people
are actually selling them in vases with plants. He wants
to educate everyone he knows about this.
shipped your box back today. You should receive it in a
JUST picked up the Bettas from the post office. They all
appear to be in good health and the heater was still warm.
Thank you for
the Tutti Frutti gift. She is a very pretty little fish as
are all the rest.
arrived safely :)
perfect ! Thanks for the 4th of July...she is beautiful!
Box will ship out tomorrow.
Until next time...
G. JONES, MI
a little work we got them early today all four (2 apaches, 1
blue crowntail *which will soon have
tetracycline healing it* and 1 red female). I must also
note they are looking pretty healthy after the
trip and are all gorgeous!
I received my Dreamcatcher and Apache pairs on Thusday (Guam
time). They are all very beautiful and you are right, the males
are real lookers. I'm 100% satisfied with my purchase.
I have fry again and they are one week old. They're parents are
Reddrick and Reba (a Satin Flame ST/BF halfmoon pair you sold to
me). I'm feeding them brine shrimp hatches and vinegar eels. I'm
waiting for the microworm culture to produce food before I
switch them to microworms.
There's something about mating that makes the bettas better. My
mated pair are so beautiful. They're fins and bodies are so much
prettier now. Reddrick is superb!
Your box has been wrapped and prepared for shipment on Monday
(Tuesday your time).
Thanks for the new shipment and be assured that the newly
arrived couples will be well cared for.
Yes I did get
them yesterday. Sorry I didn't email you sooner... They have
all been acclimated and look great. Thank you so much for the
free betta he's beautiful. Your box is already wrapped and
ready to go to the post office Monday morning. Once again,
thank you for the wonderful bettas and all your very helpful
instructions. Hope to buy from you again soon.
Wanted to let
you know that the bettas arrived today. All happy and
alive. They are beautiful!!! You sure do a
great job with them. Will be sure to be doing business
with you again in the future. Can't wait, but of course
I will, to breed the Yellows.
arrived, and everyone seems to be in fine condition. Even the
little cull doesn't look too put out. The marbles are more beautiful
than I had hoped!
Thank you for
the extra girl. Only problem is I asked you to change to
microworms instead of the Java. However, the Java is very
nice, so that is ok. Can't have too much.
I'll get you box
back to you ASAP. It will probably be in the mail today.
Gorgeous! I am
in love! Thanks for the extra female...she is angelic :)
Mailing your box in the morning.
G. JONES, MI
The Betas have
arrived safely! Thank you SO much for the baby blue one!
The satin flame is the perfect valentine from you to me. I
will email more later. I have to be away from my computer until
later tonight. Thanks again!
D. BARTH, IL
home, seem to be healthy and acclimating to their new
environment. Thanks for the "freebie", it is quite
G. BRYANT, CA
They are still acclimating but their colors are so rich!
Thanks for the opaque male...I will take good care of him!
As always....a wonderful experience!
G. JONES, MI
Good news, the bettas arrived safely and are floating in bags in their
respective warm tanks as I type! My local post office kept telling
me they weren't there. Luckily, I went looking for
them...they were being held at an annex...but all is well now :) They
are beautiful! Thanks so much for adding the surprise
satin flame male!!! Thanks for all you do. We
will definitely be using
bettatalk.com for all our betta needs!
All bettas arrived safe and sound :) The satin flame juvy is
really cute and the goliath pair very
I picked them up today at 10 am.
Fishes are doing great....and guess what I HAVE HOLY GRAILS FRYs
already !!!!!!! They spawned last Thursday. I was also able to
Spawn the Green splash pair AND the Black Splash female at the
same time with the same green slash male. It was an accident but
I ended up with eggs from two different female in one nest one
day apart. I will tell you all about it later once the frys
start putting on color and I am able to tell if it really did
work. So this weekend I am the happy godfather of 2 spawn Holy
grail and Green Splash/Black splash. Your Bettas are so easy to
Faith. There here.
After all that I did to make sure that thy would have them to
pick up at the post office, they still delivered them to my
house. I was at my aunts house because the post office is just
down the road from there. They are doing fine, and are very beautiful.
And I was very excited to get a satin flame as a surprise betta.
I will send the box back in a day or so. Thank you very much. I
will continue to order from you. Hoooo, i love them soooo much.
received the fish you sent me. They are beautiful.
Would recommend your site to friends. Thank you!!!
By they way they
have arrived! All in excellent condition. They are
J. WEBER, IL
The three fish arrived safe and sound as did the culture and
"Moo-Shu" and "Gilda" are GORGEOUS! Moo Shu
is even BETTER than you described him! They are both getting
bluer by the minute. They gobbled up their dinner of thawed
bloodworms no problem. Gilda is a bit mellow but I'm sure she
will perk up after a day or two.
"Squirt" my beautiful cull is happy as can be and
attacked his worms like they were his last! He is so
friendly and makes my heart melt with his little bulldog face.
All fish have been floating since 1pm
and will be emptied into their tanks in the morning.
I can't even tell you how satisfied and happy I am. Your
support, encouragement, and passion definitely made it easier to
put my trust in you for these and all future betta purchases!
Faith, Fish are here safe and sound and they all look to be in
great condition (thaks for the free male). This was my time
ordering fish online and it was flawless. I can tell you have
done this many times before and have it down to an art. The Fish
are in there little bags getting the water right and I'm
off to mail you your box. Thanks so much for the great service
and I look forward to buying from you many time in the future.
T. TAYSOM, UT
Faith--just wanted to let you know that everyone made it and
are acclimating as I type. They are just beautiful and
it makes me wish I would have taken the Cull and
"surprise"-- it would have been worth having a
"fish store" as my boyfriend calls my counter.
Your box is packed and ready to ship first thing tomorrow.
et bon weekend!
H. KING, IL
researching your operation and could find nothing but
excellent reviews. I bought a crowntail pair last year
from a "supposed" professional breeder. I'll
admit I have a lot to learn but the fish sent to me were poor,
even in my less experienced eyes. Everyone and every
site I checked said that I should trust you to set me up with
quality stock, in fact the word outstanding was used more than
once. (...) Thank you for working with me on this
order and guiding me in the right direction. You have no
idea how much I appreciate how you go the extra mile to ensure
that this is a satisfactory exchange for you, me, and the
bettas. I've tried other betta shippers and you can
about guess how that went. I wish I had found your site
a few years ago, I have the feeling that it would have saved
me a lot of frustration and time. Send me the grand
total for: the ivory pair, the ivory single female, the
blue HM pair, and the Blue Moon CT pair (Thanks for mentioning
this pair, they are exactly what I've been looking for) and
the bettazings. Can you believe that a grown man is so
excited about getting fish? I'll own it though, I've
been on the borderline of becoming betta crazy for a while
now; I guess you just pushed me over the edge.
all four of them! thank you so much for the free satin flame
that carries BF. Im very happy whit my fishes and i
will do busineses whit you AGAIN. Thanks again!!!
A. SANZ , MD
I picked up my
Bettas this morning and they're both doing fine! The
male actually looked fairly green right out of the box, but
the female was very light. Her fins are beginning to
have the faintest hint of color now. I've never had a
female betta before, so I'm kind of happy to have a girl in
the house! They're moving more & more and their
color is getting better. It's like they took a short
little road trip or something. They seem no worse for
wear. Thanks for doing such a great job getting them
settled in for their journey!
The bettas came this morning! The look better than a new
set of mud tires (that's country-boy slang for:
EXQUISITE!!!) I knew they would be good, but I'm completely
floored by the quality and health of these fish.
Everyone seems to have taken the trip with little or no real
stress. There wasn't much color loss (or if there was,
these babies are going to unreal looking) Everyone is
floating and the box goes in the mail tomorrow.
The BM CT is simply the most impressive betta I've ever seen.
I think I have found my primary line. Recreating his
beauty and quality will be my goal in breeding. The most
amazing thing is his sister (I'm a ladies man when it
comes to bettas) I don't think enough attention is paid
to the females when breeding bettas. I don't know
why, they are half of the genetic equation. The BM
female is the finest I've ever owned and is probably my
favorite fish of all time. The Ivories and the Blue HM's
are also great. Special thanks for the extra male Ivory,
he should heal up and be a great addition to my program.
How did you know that I can save most fish from fin rot?
I became a legend, due to early inexperience with fish, and had
to save many from fin rot. It was a negative experience
but I learned a lot. My surprise betta, juvenile
cambodian red, was a nice addition. My wife likes him
best. She had been considering divorce due to fish
madness (LOL) Even she had to marvel in the beauty and
quality of the stock.
I can't thank you enough. The quality is unparalleled
and this experience has been nothing short of fantastic.
Your help and guidance will not be forgotten. I have
decided to give away my existing stock and work with these
bettas you have sent me exclusively. They are that good.
I spent a long time and got nowhere close to this quality.
I don't know when I'll be ready to order more, but it will be
from you. FAQ: How do you expect me to wait three
weeks to breed beauties like this? LOL No, there are so
great I'll be sure to follow all the rules in order to keep
them happy and healthy. I humbly bow before your
greatness. LOL You are the master.
Got them safe
and sound! Thank you for entrusting me with the apache and
dreamcatcher, I will take extra good care of them! Your box
will be out in the mail by Monday. Giants are a beautiful as
D. WETZEL, WI
Picked up the
package this morning. All fish are alive and well!
They look so healthy. I'll do my best to keep them that
way! I'll mail your box tomorrow. Thanks again!
Everything went smoothly, the bettas arrived healthy and alive!
They are beautiful, thank you so much! Thank you also for the
extra bettas, I appreciate it... I will be bringing them into
the lab on Monday, cant wait to start spawning! I shipped
your box back today Priority Mail, so you should be
getting it in a few days. Thanks again, you're the best!
in all my excitement I forgot to email earlier. I actually
picked them up at 1:30. The yellow bettas are fantastic
and are happily floating in their bags.
S LOPATA, GA
Hi, Faith, The
bettas arrived today IN EXCELLENT CONDITION!!! They are still
in their bags floating in their respective tanks as I write. I
want to thank you for adding the TWO extra fish--they will be
enjoyed in our house!
order that I placed too late, thank you for refunding the
payment. I am sure that I will be buying from you again soon!
I will be
returning your box tomorrow. What an excellent container for
Merci pour les
poissons et pour le service extraordinaire!!!
No problem on the substitution! :D Yes, I love the
Apaches, I just wasn't sure of my capabilities with anything
other than solid color fish. Not quite a novice, but not
quite up to you either! :D
received my Bettas this morning and they are fine. They are
really beautiful fish.
J. ELLINGTON, NC
They are here and they look great.. They are in their bags
adapting as we speak.. Thank you so much for the extra apache
male and the other culls. I assure you that they will have a
good home with many spoils. I must say that I feed my cull fish
to much.. I cannot help it.. Frozen Blood Worms and Frozen brine
shrimp. I also live across from the fishing docks on Salmon Bay
in Seattle where in the spring and summer I get tons of mosquito
larva in the old dry dock boats.. they all have plastic bait
wells with standing water and larva. I give the larva a bath in
my h20 mixture that has all the remedies for parasites.. My
Betta love that..
S. MESKAN, WA
The bettas are doing great, they were a little stressed when
they got here, but have colored up nicely and are looking
spectacular, the culls aren't as active, but all are eating well
so I'm not worried. The crowntail female is beautiful and the
black CT male is absolutely STUNNING! Thank you so much for
these great fish, I love them all.
have the bettas floating in their tanks to be & I have to
say that the satin flame females look great. The male's
got great fins, and the crowntails have some amazing fins too.
I was so surprised when I found the two extra bettas in my box,
they're really cute :-) (...)
